Unpopular Opinion- I feel the same way about Cate Blanchett in Blue Jasmine. Yes, she was great, but I think she’s been better in a half dozen or so of her other films. (In BJ, I thought she was recycling her own stage performance as Blanche DuBois in A Streetcar named Desire.)
That was kinda the point of BJ. Woody’s A Streetcar Named Desire and Cate fresh off her stage performance. Didn’t he say at the time he wrote it for her? Seem to remember that, but could be wrong.
I loathe her Carol performance, which I guess is my unpopular opinion.May 23, 2022 at 10:39 am #1204961383
Any word on Djimon Hounsou?May 19, 2022 at 7:56 am #1204956690
I heard Tom Cruise was considered for the DDL role. If Tom Cruise was instead of DDL, probably Nicole Kidman didn’t accept her role. Their divorce was brutal
This is news to me.
I loved him in Rock of Ages. Amazing singing voice.
All I know is Catherine Zeta-Jones wanted more money and her role expanded, so they went with Nicole Kidman.May 19, 2022 at 7:37 am #1204956667
Does anyone know why Scream 4 looks like that?
I mean Scream 2 is arguably the best looking one and it had the same DOP: Peter Deming.
Is there maybe a discussion or video where he talks about it?
I’ve looked and can’t find any.
But it is so glaring (pun intended) that there must be a discussion on it somewhere.May 18, 2022 at 5:31 pm #1204956055
You could be right about Musicals. Musicals are 100% Theater. Even Daniel Day Lewis was really weird in his only Musical ever. By the way, Antonio Banderas was Better in that role. Daniel Day Lewis was miscast for that specific role. The role was, more or less, a Playboy and Antonio Banderas plays a Great Playboy
I wonder if the problem is that Daniel Day-Lewis doesn’t dance.
That climbing the scaffolding scene was so odd.
At the time DDL said he was very keen to work with Rob Marshall, but told him he doesn’t dance. Wish he had given it a go.May 18, 2022 at 3:25 am #1204955242

Hugh Jackman however I think is an atrocious singer, he sounds like a drunk person at a Karaoke bar at last call trying to hard and missing every note.
LMAO at your comment😅
I thought he sounded like a goat. (And I mean the animal not greatest of all time)
Does a goat bah? It sounded like a whole lot of bahingMay 18, 2022 at 3:03 am #1204955227
Did anyone else miss Marco Beltrami’s score in Scream 5?
It didn’t feel like Scream to me without his music.May 18, 2022 at 3:01 am #1204955223
Did you guys ever watch Wes Craven’s New Nighmare?
Thought that was pretty clever too and predates Scream re the meta stuff.May 16, 2022 at 2:07 pm #1204953998

Can we add Charlize Theron in the 2000sMay 16, 2022 at 2:44 am #1204953478
I used to be a huge Nicole Kidman fan.
Love so many of her movies: Dead Calm, To Die For, The Portrait of a Lady, The Others, Moulin Rouge!, Dogville (my favourite and should have been Oscar nominated for this), Rabbit Hole.
Also like her as supporting in Lion and Boy Erased.
But I can’t stand her in Big Little Lies, Being the Ricardos and The Northman (how come her character didn’t age a day from the opening scenes to when Alexander Skarsgård is an adult?).
Just find her incredibly hard to watch now and don’t enjoy her performances anymore.
I think this is a very unpopular opinion to have, but there it is.May 16, 2022 at 2:33 am #1204953471
I agree. Scream 5 was the worst to me. I think Scream 1-3 are The Greatest. Even Scream 4 was kind of boring and redundant. Scream and Scream 2 were Masterpieces and Wes Craven was in his Ultimate Prime in Scream and Scream 2
I did enjoy Scream 4 though. Thought it was a return to form after Scream 3 went all Scooby Doo with too much “comedy”.
But I cringed hard during the hospital scene with Jill…Not now
